As part of the MLS Works Greener Goals Week of Service, the Houston Dynamo FC and the Houston Dash volunteered with A Recipe for Success at Hope Farms on Thursday, April 13th with the support of Texas Pride Disposal.
"It was so fabulous to see the players out here doing deep and important work," said Grace Canvar, founder of Hope Farms. "It's inspiring to see them get their hands dirty, inspiring for the fans of the Dynamo and Dash as well and inspiring for our team as well. We loved having the Dynamo and Dash here at Hope Farms!"
Alongside Dash players Shea Groom, Nichelle Prince, and Ella Dedrick, Dynamo right back Griffin Dorsey and Club President Jessica O'Neill, volunteers participated in various activities ranging from beautification projects, trash removal and hauling away, packaging seeds for farming, and much more.
